bit about steve jobs as well. huge news. he put out a letter announcing his resignation. it's hard to overstate the impact this guy has had on computing and music. he changed the music business. on film with pixar, on marketing, on retail experience. this guy is a giant in american history. >> no, i think that, you know, we use the term giant too loosely. there's clearly giants and then there's giants. i think he falls in the real giant category because he impacted american culture and world culture. what he did, the technology and as you say music, it transformed how we deal with information. it transformed culture at so many different levels. he changed the face of the earth in how people relate to each other. he will go down in history as a real, real giant and deservingly so. >> he said in a statement, if there was a time i could no longer meet my duties i would be the first to let you know. unfortunately, that day has come. s.e., he touched every part of our lives. >> i think when we all heard he had pancreatic cancer, we saw the writing on the walls. we knew this day would co

buchanan in washington. joining the table right now, though, finacier, steve. >> we've been hearing a lot over the past couple of days, a lot of democratic senators, commentators, some op-ed people telling us so much in slashing spending children will be kicked out of schools, parents will have to be feeding their children pine cones and wild berries. you got a chart. this is serious. it's unbelievable. they cut so much. i guess all of our long term debt problems are taken care of. >> well you guessed wrong. let's take a look at what actually happened. so they did cut or were going to cut $2.1 trillion often years, back loaded and so on. this is a chart we looked at a couple of weeks ago. if you remember back in 2000 we had a surplus because tax revenues were 20.5% roughly. spending took off. you can see in the middle of that chart. spending at 28.1%. if we had done nothing -- >> for people at home the red line is the spending. the blue line is the revenues and they are going in the wrong direction. >> they are going in the wrong direction. let's look at the two top red lines. two top re

, mark halprin and economic analyst steve rat ner. thank you for changing your plans. in washington, pat bu can nan is joining us. willie is on his way in. so much to talk about. >> saturday morning, when we talked about this later at my daughter's birthday party. both of us looked at the horrifying news of saturday morning coming out of afghanistan. coupled with the sp downgrade. as a young girl, back in 1979 when so many things were hitting at one time. it was, i really can't think of another time in my lifetime where i woke up and saw a couple things hitting like that and i don't want to say questioned america's place in the world but certainly thought we lost our way. >> a bleak feeling. we are going to talk about the unspeakable loss in afghanistan coming up and why, when and when it will become a central part of the political conversation when we talk about campaigns. when it will be front and center of the issue. i don't know when but i'm hoping soon. >> you, let's talk for a second about 1979. if you said, when you read the papers that morning that you had this -- it almost took

's on your cover. steve jobs, how he droef apple to victory, how he changed our world. i think 20, 30, 50 years from now, i think we see this man as our thomas edison. he is not only our thomas edison. he's been in a way been our thomas edison, he's been our beatles. he has changed the publishing industry. he's changed the record industry. he has changed the cell phone industry, the computing industry, he's changed movies, he's changed the way we lived. he's changed the way we get information. and the most remarkable thing about his story and few commercials -- i remember 20 years later, i remember actually, i was actually in the house gym. and i was walking exhausted at 6:30, i'd finished working out. i was going back to work. and a commercial came on. and it was a think different commercial. i froze in my tracks -- this was when microsoft was at the top of the world. i froze in my tracks, looked up at the tv set, and like the lemming i am -- i said to myself at that moment, i have to get an apple. i had never had an apple. i walked -- of course i didn't get it. but he came out with comp

or ed, pass out and there we are. >> willie looks like my cat. steve enjoys msnbcs morning show as much as i do. willie looks like my cat? i think she's saying willie, my cat steve -- i don't know if i should point this out, but we have more cats watching our show than we have people. we are grateful for all of them. "morning joe" starts right now. >>> i got in trouble talking about the federal reserve. i got -- i got lectured about that yesterday. an agency of government, like the federal reserve, they should open their books up. they should be transparent so the people of the united states know what they are doing, how they are doing it and frankly, i think if they are -- the mistrust that is there today, if they would simply open up and be transparent with the american people, i think it would go a long way toward either finding out whether or not there is some activities that are improper or that they have been handling themselves quite well. >> the governor, i can't remember his name, coming in to -- he realizes talking about it too. he makes me look like a moderate. i have never o

prospered. we don't have that. steve jobs. here is another great example. steve jobs obsessed on making a cleaner, simply, better. he did it night and day. i don't care if it's fdr or it's ronald reagan. ronald reagan's obsession in 1981, i'm going to get america moving and back to work. it was a singular obsession. i wonder sometimes, arianna, whether this president, if it's not who he is. these conservatives who say he's an ideologue, he's not. whether you are a conservative reagan or liberal, fdr. >> right now, the two things coming together. one is symbolically, it's a very significant moment. that was the last time when you described what happened on a large scale, when you came together as a nation. you could overcome anything. >> you were told to go shopping. >> let's not minimize it. we came together as a country. there you go being very ideological. arianna is exactly right. after 9/11, we came together as country. you got the feeling like we heard in world war ii in the fox holes, there weren't democrats and republicans. >> the thing obama has is his competitive spirit has bee

. we are squandering this creativity and drive and imagination. the next steve jobs could, you know, be in one of these neighborhoods that we essentially write off these days. nick is absolutely right and you are right about education being this escalator out of poverty. the other escalator, traditionally has been blue collar jobs that allowed, for examp example, millions of african-americans who took the migration to several cities in chicago and detroit to find good jobs that gave them, let them have a house and pension and raise their families and send their kids to college. those jobs are missing, they are gone. it's a combination, no education, no jobs makes it very tough. >> i think a lot of americans may not fully appreciate part of this dynamic. i think the quick snapshot in the media when you think of unemployment, you think middle class, middle-aged white guy out of a job. he was a construction worker. in black america, unemployment is off the charts. in this recession is hitting african-americans disproportionately hard. it's a crisis for everyone. sometimes we don't appr
